Understanding, Cultivating, and Enjoying Cannabis
As prohibition wanes and cannabis lovers of all stripes come out from the shadows, old stereotypes are fading and common misconceptions are being put to rest. The benefits of cannabis are undeniable––medicinally, sure, but also for stress, creativity, and relaxation. And as any home brewer, winemaker, or backyard gardener can tell you, there's a particular joy in doing it yourself.
Whether you're new to cannabis and need to walk through the basics, or you're an experienced grower looking to hone your techniques, Grow Your Own provides all the background and instruction you need to set up a grow space, raise your plants, and harvest your buds. It will teach you to choose a strain based on its particular characteristics and traits, how to manage insects and molds without the use of pesticides, and how to maintain a healthy living-soil ecosystem right in your home garden. But Grow Your Own will also give you a primer on the cannabis pant itself and the myriad ways to enjoy it––from rolling a joint to selecting a vaporizer; from carving an apple pipe to baking a delicious batch of pot brownies. With photography, schematics, and infographics––along with illustrations from Allen Crawford––Grow Your Own promises that the process will be as accessible as it is rewarding.
